One Thousand Goodbyes
a stranger became a friend
with little time left
she let me into her reflections
her child and husband dead
tragedy would strike again
her time on earth
would expire soon
her empty heart to be filled
in the heavens
she showed and told
her last wishes to me
a thousand poems
she wanted to leave behind
I think she made it
I never found out
angels stole her
On this somber Sunday
another one left this earth
some might even say St Patrick
I can make only a simple claim
a thousand poems I have written
to honor those
with more charity than I
who will remember us all?
when we too one day shall die
death, emotions, poems,
Imagine if all the krill
Beneath the ice shelves were dead.
Millions plus millions of krill
Fodder for ocean’s creatures:
Penguins, walrus, whales.
In the end all will die and the ocean
Will be a poorer place for all.
Imagine if all the trees
Would lose all their leaves for ever.
No Autumn splendour,
No fruit, no place where to hide.
Would we not be living
In pure disaster?
Imagine if there would not be any wind.
No music to inspire,
No words to adorn the arias,
No emotion on men’s faces.
We thrive on emotion.
And what is emotion if not poetry?
We simply cannot live without it.

Impulsive or compulsive
Either way it's not conducive
Living with this disorder
Can't be good for my liver
Obsessions, when do they stop?
Compulsions, when do I stop?
Let me illustrate and reiterate
My demons make me infuriated
To the point, man, I really want to escape this
Live everyday like your last?
These hours go by fast
Trying to obliterate every ounce of the past
Always with the imagery and self coping insanity
That broke me and continues to break me.
Another day, no not another day
I just got out, please let me stay away.

Jab Meri Bechaini Mit Jayegi
Jab Mere Dilko Sukoon Mil Jayega
Yeh Khaalipan Mit Jayega
Do Pal Ki Chandni Ke Liye
Aj Bhi Zinda Hoon Main
Meri Khaamoshi Ke Ageh Aasmaan Bhi Khatam Ho Jayega
Kehne Ke Liye Toh Roz Marta Hoon Main
Thoda Aur Marne Ke Liye
Yeh Deewana Kal Phir Ayega

In time all wounds heal
It's what you make of it and how you express what is real,
Healing is a process that varies with time
Depending on the situation you may heal on a dime,
But, if you loose a loved one in a sudden death
We must have patience cause only God knows what is best,
And even then time seems to stop
We have to try to move on even through the rain drops,
Life will go on without a doubt
We will never really understand what life is all about,
Just remember time does heal all cuts
Especially the ones that hurt us deep in to our guts,
Have faith in God and you will see
That this is the world he created for you and me.

Tribute to APJ Abdul Kalam
Most respectfully dedicated to
Shri APJ Abdul Kalam,
Our beloved Ex-President of INDIA
You left us with a shock
You left us with a tear..
You left us with your books
You left us with your words
You left us with your missiles
You deserve not just a word
To properly describe you
To honour and acknowledge you
To show the respect we have for you
We say 'Kalam Tujhe Salaam"
You lived as right as a man can live,
You showed love and respect for fellow man,
You led by example to things Godly
And even in death,
You were there for the young minds
REST IN PEACE,
APJ ABDUL KALAM--

June 18, 2013 our world was Forever Changed
We where a few minutes from home
When we got the call from our baby sister
Said we need to get back home
We need to come as fast as we can drive
Mom really needs us
Something’s wrong with Daddy
The whole way we drove 80
Hoping & Praying we’d make it back in time
Our Family & Friends were weeping
By the time we got to his side
We knew then our Daddy had been taking
And our hearts they were breaking
We never got to say Goodbye
We each softly kissed that man
We four sisters laid down beside him
And cried just like babies
For our world was Forever Changed that day

She watched as the earth fell asleep
Waited for the yellow moon
soft kisses of unfaithful wind..
Images..Images on her head
Nostalgic memory of a forgotten love
Flashes of things she tried to forget..
Her eyes caught the reflection of the moon
locked inside the rain on her cheek..
She was standing alone..
Her grieving heart sought
solace from the moon
She petitioned the stars
Where is he this very night?
Cruel..oh so cruel..
Beneath the silence of the sky
she bowed her head and cried..

kill two birds with one stone

when one can kill them
more efficiently with a drone

Atop the road by the sea
Thou confessed thy affection for me
By a kiss as thy language of love
Ebbed from the copious desire thou have
A kiss from thee, my first love,
Something at last I have
My first love; my first kiss
I didn’t expect I’ll miss
‘Twas a kiss of farewell
For my love will depart and travel
Didn’t know when we’ll meet again
But I’m hoping it’ll happen
Though it’s heartbreaking,
I have to accept the pain I’m feeling.
The first and last kiss we had
Is the first and last kiss we’ll have?

When meanings have been broken,
When your cross has been uncrossed,
When the reasons that you gave me,
In the labyrinth have been lost.
When your house has been emptied,
When your bedroom is swept clean,
I will come and wake you,
From your long and endless dream.

Sit by my side and lick my toes,
Or stick your nose in my lap.
There never could be time for woe
Not even time to nap.
Your tail wags fast and furious,
And you hop about with joy.
Looking up at me and smiling,
Like a kid with a new toy.
I love you like you’re family,
and look forward to each day.
A love so unconditional,
There’s always time to play.
Our time together may be cut short,
For life sometimes is not fair.
But you will always have my heart,
Devotion, Time, and Care.

Alas there is no more confusion,
finally found my last conclusion.
Expect me as if Jesus will return,
from a ghost to a realm of concern.
Your dreams are portals like doors,
welcoming spirits into hasten wars.
Leaving the thoughts without trust,
keeping your fears in much disgust.
And though you sought no consequence,
deeds that confirm a wicked malevolence.
Awaiting in your nightmare of screams,
enjoy what is left amongst your dreams.

Where were you when my world fell apart?
The Sun darkened and the Moon just fled.
All had been done and all had been said.
And ripped to shreds was my beating heart.
Even the Seas began to part.
And the Mountain tops spread.
I lay there completely dead.
Even the Stars I could not chart.
If only you knew,
If only you were there,
If only you had a clue!
If only life had been fair!
I’d turn the clocks back,
Still standing dead in my track!

read me a poem today
whose lines I've heard before,
bur where and when,
I couldn't tell:
"the shortest road is the one
that you know,
the longest road is the one
that you love"
soaked in deep thoughts,
I sat there for hours and hours
my eyes shut, lips dry
waiting for further clues
until, as a sudden,
the 'longest way' part rang a bell
I got off the chair,
opened my arms wide towards the ocean
hugged and kissed the wind,
the almightiest messenger of them all,
for making me feel again

I'll get better, one day.
I know I will.
I just have to keep going this way,
and try not to fall down this hill.
Sure, I'll fall out sometimes,
but if I don't, how will I learn?
These are the times-
it's strength, I'll earn.
It takes time to get better,
it takes time to be happy,
but I know if I do this with her,
I'll no longer feel crappy.
This is the time to change,
the time to smile,
time to leave this range,
and run the mile.

Even the rain falls,
The world won't flood, no more.
For I am now to shed a tear
Of a wounded heart where you are here.
As long as the moon lights up the dark,
The fire of love will stay at heart.
If ever the rest might start to fade,
I promise to remain the same.
For my love for you is boundless,
Won't easily change, nor easily erase.
And I promise, not to hesitate
To visit you always at your grave.

I wake up with another tear
for I have again, relived the nightmare
will it ever leave me with any way to see
when will I again be able to see my family
the past is forgiven
so why is it still living
my heart was so broken
but soon after it was frozen
let it lie and the past die
for I have a life to live with
but the past is still being relived
how do I stop this past of torture
so I can find my new future

A life form
Thriving on hatred
Reaped from societies
We are following our ancestors
Disregard the fact
That we are all human
our blood is red
I smirk when I’m contented
And shed tears when I’m poignant
We are all equal
cease this schism
And trounce racism
beautiful, language, poems, poetry, school, sympathy, teacher, teen,
Energy and passion,
excitement breeds attraction;
a brilliant work, a masterpiece
explored in true love fashion.
Traversing plots with disregard
for clear-cut truths,
it must be hard
Our cartoon minds
the words she spins,
the twist; the end.
I walk out the door
and know my thoughts mean
corruption, dark, death, metaphor, murder, poems, sensual,
I am a lullaby,
soft, silk sheets surrounding your ears,
such a lullaby
that sways the mind to halt its gears.
I am a lullaby,
the pill your heart swallows to fall asleep,
such a lullaby
that moves Death to sing when it comes to reap.
M. L. Kiser
death, poems, poetry,
Cut your teeth on a sure thing and they’ll all fall out, too soon.
The gambler loses a lifetime, while the diligent will succeed.
The only certainty; the sure thing, in this life, si death.
M. L. Kiser
death, life, poems, poetry,
Life erodes the body; riding its waves, leaves one drained.
Spirit’s education, is wear and tear; the mortal is cut short.
Beware the reaper’s scythe; the scalpel of death, cuts swift and clean.
